Ever notice that your Sim's neighbors go out and get their mail while you have to make your sim do it? I wanted a more realistic instance and kind of got tired of RepoMan if I forgot to make someone pay bills. So I looked into the bill paying sections and found that User sims are not Autonomous enabled by default. Enabling this though, wasnt enough, so I added a fun instance to prod them along.

What You Need To Know:
  • Base game has you pay bills twice a week (Monday & Thursday) at 1.3% each day. This mod schedules the bill to arrive on Friday only.
  • There are 5 versions: bills at 1%, bills at 2.6%, bills at 5%, bills at 10%, and bills at 0% aka No Bills. (The default is 2.6%)
  • I have used this for some time and have only had them not pay bills a couple of times. Often times sims will line up to do this. This is NOT a guarantee that bills will be paid since Sims are busy taking care of personal needs, job requirements, etc so they may or may not carry this out depending on free time and mood. You are ultimately responsible for paying bills.
  • Works with patches 1.57 - 1.67 and edits the following resources:
    • PayAllBills_Bill
    • PayAllBills_Mailbox
    • PayBill_Bill
    • Mailbox_0x894944a6dad4a2cf
    • Bill_0x4c526e5a10fc8802

Patch 1.63 was released 17 Oct 13, it updates nearly 1000 xml and itun resources from GamePlayData, Most if not all Tuning Mods WILL NOT work with patch 1.63 and will require updating.

NOTE: this mod is unchanged by patch 1.63 and therefore does not need updating.

I find that this isn't working with NRaas mods, probably Story Progression Money. Has anyone else gotten it to work alongside?

It might depend on your settings in SP . .. In some cases where tuning mods have the same function as SP, turning Off the command in SP will send a command to turn off the command in the Tuning Mod. For Example turning off Auto Bill Pay is SP could also be sending a command to the mod to turn it off. Ask over at NRaas if a definitive answer is not available here.

Can't get this to work. I have autonomy for the Sims turned to low, because I like to control them, mostly, but I keep forgetting to pay the bills. (I miss the computer mod that let you pay bills online. ) Does autonomy have to be maxxed in order for this to work?

EDIT: Just discovered that it's not loading for some reason. It's in the mods folder, along with everything else, but when the game shows the list of mods that have loaded, all the others there and this one is not listed.
